got a question about girls and d-aspartic acid,
ive bought a pre workout recently (LIT-Up) and per 2 scoops it contains 3mg of d-aspartic acid. My GF is looking to use this a few times a week just for a bit of energy before a workout. She had a little bit today and liked the energy she got from it, altho it was probably half a scoop if that.
Is there any side effects of taking it with women? google didnt give me a whole lot of answers. She will only be taking 1 scoop, so that is roughly 1.5mg of d aspartic acid, and most likely no more than 3 times a week.
Can some1 tell me if she should or shouldnt be using it? i know its a test booster etc which is why im unsure.
so any info would be great! thankyou

This statement isn't quite true. I've been doing the research lately, being that I am a woman and have only been using d-aspartic acid for a short 2 weeks. There is not much info on the net about women and d-aspartic acid, but see this article for sure: (I can't post the url since I don't have any posts, remove all spaces...) http : / / tnation . t - nation . com / free _ online _ forum/ sports _ body _training _ performance _ bodybuilding _ thibaudeau / daspartic _ acid _
Looks like you need to implement an additional supplement, an aromatase inhibitor, so that the aromatase levels don't ping your body into converting it to estrogen.
"D-Aspartic Acid is an exciting supplement that can certainly increase testosterone, but it should be stacked with aromatase inhibitors for maximal effects!"

In my research DAA really isn't recommended for women since we never get the testosterone boosting effects, only elevated levels of estrogen. In men, and as with most other test boosters, there is usually an increase in test and estrogen-this cannot be avoided. The research on women and DAA is somewhat limited, but everything I have managed to come across states the same result. I think DAA is one of those very few supplements women shouldn't take.Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/Chickthatlifts
